Ending the cycle of youth homelessness.
Street Outreach – counselors go on the streets and try to reach homeless kids. The single greatest need for homeless and street kids is continuous caring and real support.
Outreach Centers – provide safe and protective environments for homeless and at-risk youth. spaces where youth can drop-in to rest, receive a hot meal, receive healthcare, meet with our volunteer counselors, and receive help with applications for housing, school, and/or citizenship. Some locations also accommodate shower and laundry facilities.
Mentoring – we conduct mentoring in school, after school, and in our Outreach Centers.
Housing – Help homeless kids build stable homes.
The National Center for Homeless Education (NCHE) operates the Department’s technical assistance center for the federal Education for Homeless Children and Youth (EHCY) Program.
For assistance with an issue related to the education of a child or youth experiencing homelessness, contact the NCHE homeless education help toll-free number. Assistance is available in English and Spanish.
Our mission – to feed, to clothe, to comfort, to care. To rebuild broken homes and broken lives. By walking with the addicted, we can lead them to recovery. In fighting hunger and poverty, we can feed and nurture the spirit. And, in living and sharing the Christian Gospel by meeting tangible needs, we give the world a lasting display of the love behind our beliefs.
HOUSING AND HOMELESS SERVICES
There are a lot of reasons people need help with housing. Sometimes, life doesn’t turn out the way we planned. Other times, we experience unexpected circumstances in life, such as job loss or debt following a medical emergency. With one in six people living in poverty today, homelessness is not predictable or exclusive to a certain “type” of person – it could happen to anyone.
Whether you need a roof over your head for the night or you’re looking for an affordable place to call home for years, The Salvation Army has a number of transitional and permanent options in centers throughout Georgia that can help. Thousands of people sleep safely every night because of these programs.
Salvation Army programs and services vary with local needs. For information on specific programs and locations, contact your local Salvation Army Corps Community Center.
